2020 - Senate Bill 902 (Wiener, Scott), Housing Development Density (Dead)
Transportation Planning, Land Use, and Housing
Office of Legislative Affairs
Would have authorized a local government to pass an ordinance, notwithstanding any local restrictions on adopting zoning ordinances, to zone any parcel for up to 10 units of residential density per parcel, if the parcel is located in a transit-rich area, a jobs-rich area, or an urban infill site. The bill also would have required the Department of Housing and Community Development, in consultation with the Office of Planning and Research, to determine jobs-rich areas and publish a map of those areas every five years. Held in the Assembly Appropriations Committee.
